That's not a big deal because KVM uses the uncompacted format. So
KVM_CHECK_EXTENSION and KVM_GET_XSAVE can just use CPUID to retrieve the
size and uncompacted offset of the largest bit that is set in
kvm_supported_xcr0, while KVM_SET_XSAVE can do the same with the largest
bit that is set in the xstate_bv.
